Benghazi Survivor: ‘Anybody With Half a Brain Can See It Was Due to Political Reasons’

Last week, United States District Judge Royce Lamberth ordered multiple senior State Department officials under the Obama administration to answer Judicial Watch’s questions related to Hillary Clinton’s email scandal and the Sept. 11, 2012 attack in Benghazi.

During Industry Day at the Range at SHOT Show 2019, I had the opportunity to talk with Kris “Tanto” Paronto, one of the men who survived the attack in Benghazi.

Kris: They’ve been answering questions so they knew what was going on. What bothers me is they knew what was going on. And they admitted it. They left us. They left us behind. Anybody with half a brain can see it was due to political reasons.

Bottom line is this: There has to be a politician that goes in there and says, ‘You know what? We left these guys behind. And we tried to cover it up. And then we lied about it. And we utilized our own justice system and our own intel agency to hand off responsibility.’ And now they’re being held responsible, whether it’s jail time or mass humiliation…I don’t have a problem with that. It’s necessary. There’s enough information out there to show that they lacked any integrity…

Kris: With “13 Hours” being out there, we’ll always memorialize the guys. Now the question is, are we going to have political officials, the Comeys, the Brennans, the Hillary Clintons, go in there and try to cover it up?

Paronto said he continues to talk about that tragic day in Benghazi because it’s important to help memorialize his friends, but because it’s also healing for him. Talking about losing his friends has been a way for him to deal with what took place on September 11, 2012.
